Oh my gosh, 7 is too many steps. Make it simpler.

How to Add a Project in Seven Simple Steps
Go to our Projects Page, and type the name of your project in the appropriate place.
If it's a new idea you just thought of and want to propose, put it under "New Ideas"
If it's something you've thought about how to implement, put it under "Planning"
If it's something you (and maybe other people) are actually working to make happen, put it under "Active Development"
Click the "New Hackpad" button at the top left corner.
Hey, great idea for a project. However, I talked this over with Ozzie Gooen and my personal opinion (not necessarily Ozzie's) was that the expected savings (estimated at $3K) wasn't worth the estimated time needed to be spent making it (five full-time person-weeks valued at $8k). Additionally, I'm skeptical that the project could be completed well on such a short time scale (one month). --Peter
